Bioscience is increasingly data driven, as new bioanalytical techniques deliver ever more data about genes, proteins, metabolites and the interactions between them. Bioinformatics is the discipline tasked with turning all this data into useful information and new biological knowledge, a discipline in which there is a serious shortage of trained people. Without assuming any prior informatics experience, this course gets biologists up to speed with essential bioinformatics skills and provides the opportunity to apply these in a cutting edge research project. The course is taught by QMUL academics who are actively engaged in developing bioinformatics tools and applying them in areas such as genome sequencing, proteomics, evolution, ecology, psychology, cancer, diabetes and other diseases. We have an extensive network of academic and industrial collaborators around the UK and in Europe, who will contribute to teaching, co-supervise projects and provide employment opportunities.
- New course, covering the very latest tools and techniques. - Delivered by experts in the development and application of bioinformatics techniques. - An innovative group project, collaborating with peers to produce new bioinformatics software. - Providing the skills and experience that employers need. - A six month individual thesis project tackling a real world bioinformatics challenge. - Flexible modes of study: full time, part time, campus-based or online.
